London: DJ David Guetta says he suffered from panic attacks for a full year after splitting from his wife, Cathy.
The 47-year-old 'Play Hard' hitmaker said he found it difficult to cope during his split, after 20 years of marriage and struggled to make music as a result, reported Daily Mirror.
"Panic attacks are when your brain is completely going crazy because you are doing a lot of, 'What if, what if, what if, what if.' There was a moment when I couldn't make music. I would get in the studio," he said.
Fortunately Guetta was able to recover after meeting a fellow sufferer during his birthday party at his home in Ibiza, who gave him valuable advice about battling his demons.
